Boldly combining the power of dance and cinema, MARI tells the story of professional dancer and choreographer Charlotte (Bobbi Jene Smith), as she prepares for a new show. Uniquely using the poetic expression of dance to drive the narrative, Charlotte’s world is turned upside down when she discovers she’s pregnant and her grandmother Mari is coming to the end of life, forcing her to confront her past to choose the future she wants.

Featuring sequences choreographed by Maxine Doyle, and an evocative score by Peter Gregson, Georgia Parris’ genre-defying dance-drama is a love letter to mother-daughter relationships and the difficult choices we make to preserve them.
